Youth Transition Services
FrameWORK for Success
Funded by the Brandywine School District and the New Castle County Vocational Technical School District, this program serves youth with disabilities, 18 to 21 years old, who are interested in learning work skills and exploring options in preparation for adult life. Working closely with students and the school district, we coordinate work experiences with local businesses and work adjustment training at ServiceSource to assist the students to discover their unique vocational talents and gifts, promote inclusion in the community and provide a foundation from which students can build upon in making post-secondary educational and career decisions.FrameWORK for Success

High School/High Tech (HS/HT)
HSHT is a community-based partnership that provides high school students with all types of disabilities, ages 14-22, the opportunity to explore jobs and post-secondary education while still in high school. Located in Pinellas, Pasco and Hillsborough Counties, HSHT partners with local high schools, employers and businesses to provide access to guest speakers, workshops, specific skill training, and paid summer internships. Focusing on the transition from high school to work, or post-secondary schools, the ServiceSource HSHT programs have a 100% high school graduation rate. Students report an increase in self-esteem, understanding of the skills needed to be successful in the workforce, and have a job or career goal.
Florida High School High Tech is part of the national HSHT initiative, supported by the US Department of Labor Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP). It is funded in Florida by The Able Trust, a nonprofit foundation providing employment support for Floridians with disabilities and supported by the Florida Department of Education’s Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.
